The field that the club fills is of so much importance to the 
young men of the profession that the club feels strongly its ob- 
ligation to continue the educational work of its atelier and

Boston Architectural Club 

SUMMARY OF THE YEAR 1908-9 

The past year has been a most successful one. The Club has 
grown in membership, having increased its list of members by 39 
since the previous year, making a total membership today of 335. 
The Club has been able, largely through the success of its last exhibition 
catalogue, to have a financially successful year, with more in the Club 
Treasury than when the year started, in spite of increasingly large run- 
ning expenses. 

The atelier has been taken advantage of by an increasingly large 
and enthusiastic body of fellows, who have worked hard at the prob- 
lems issued by the Beaux Arts Society of Architects, and have made a 
gratifying record in the matter of mentions and places. 

The library is constantly increasing through purchases made pos- 
sible by the fund established by Mr. Arthur Rotch, and in the past 
year it has also received a gift of valuable books from the Rotch estate. 
Considerable work has been done towards the arrangement of ma- 
terial, the architectural magazine plates having been completely sorted, 
arranged, and placed in substantial files, where they should be of much 
use. 

The usual club meetings have been held, and the Club members 
have had the opportunity of meeting members of the profession both 
in and out of Boston. It is hoped to have still more architects from 
other cities present at the various meetings of the Club in the future. 

An exhibition of the work of the principal architectural schools 
of the country was held at the Club in^'December, 1 908, comprising 
exhibits, from the architectural departments of the Carnegie Technical 
Schools, Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Tech- 
nology, the University of Pennsylvania and the ateliers of the Society 
of Beaux Arts of Architects, and our own Club. It was an exhibition 
of very great interest, nearly two hundred entries being received, and 
such exhibitions in the future are to be most earnestly desired. 

On December 5, 1908, at a regular meeting, the Club voted to es- 
tablish a fund for the support of the educational work. This fund was 
to be known as The Education Endowment Fund, and was to be held 
by three trustees, under a deed of trust, a certain proportion of the in- 
come to be turned over to the treasurer of the Club for purposes to 
be designated by the trustees. Mr. Robert S. Peabody, Mr. Robert D. 
Andrews, and Mr. R. Clipston Sturgis accepted their appointment by 
the President as the first trustees. On October 2nd, at the annual 
meeting, a new article in the constitution was adopted, providing for 
this fund as a fundamental part of the Club organization. Of course 
a very small part of such fund can be subscribed by the Club members, 
and it is hoped that people who are able to give, and who are inter- 
ested in such efforts along the lines of what is known as continuous 
education, will recognize the work along this line that the Club is 
striving to do, and will give it the substantial backing which it needs 
by contributions to this fund.

A BATHROOM OF ONLY 35 YEARS AGO 



1~HIS was considered in the early 70's as the model bath room, 
' with the zinc or copper lined bathtub, the marble top lavatory and 
other fixtures all encased in wood. 

How different is the Modern Bathroom with its sanitary, open 
plumbing and snowy white " ( $tatt<fa#4*' pl um hing fixtures. *$tatf(fetf<f 
fixtures are all of one-piece construction, without a crack or crevice 
for the lodgment of dirt, germs or vermin. 

Discriminating Architects everywhere specify ^tftttdftttf" Plumb- 
ing Fixtures in all their work, as these fixtures for over a Quarter 
Century have led all others in sanitary efficiency and beautiful design. 

All over the world you will find ,$t&lKfa#<f fixtures used, and es- 
pecially in those structures that have become known as high types of 
architectural beauty.

sents the highest type of Sanitary Progress. 

Architects and builders are invited to visit our showrooms and see our complete line. The large

In the succeeding pages we illustrate a few of the buildings in which 
"Tapestry" Brick has been used. The monumental character of these 
buildings and the high standing of the architects from whose designs thev 
have been erected, is of itself sufficient proof that "Tapestry" Brick is in 
no sense a "fad," but that it has taken its place as a standard building 
material, combining in the highest degree, economy, utility and beauty. 
I lad thedesigners of these buildings had the least doubt as to the real merit 
of the material or the ultimate success of its use, it would not have been 
chosen for work of such importance. 

Lack of space prevents our illustrating further examples, but the excellent 
effects produced by "Tapestry" Brick in buildings of a similar nature in almost 
every large city east of the Mississippi River, warrants our statement that 
"Tapestry" Brick is preeminently desirable and particularly adapted not only for country 
and city houses but for churches, libraries, hospitals, clubhouses, schools, fraternal 
buildings and high grade apartments. 

Even the careful description of the texture, bonding and selection of the 
brick which we present on the following pages can give but a slight idea of 
the beauty of "Tapestry" Brick; the only adequate impression is one gained 
from the buildings wherein it is used, and we cordially invite not only the 
inspection of those illustrated herewith, but of those in other cities, a list 
of which will be furnished to any one sufficiently interested to inquire.

Gray, i" wide, rough cut flush. 

At a distance, this building is of a reddish gray tint, 
the contrasting colors of the individual bricks being 
entirely eliminated by the great number of inter- 
mediate shadings and the relatively large size of 
the mortar joint. At a closer viewpoint, the different 
shades are very pronounced, although in perfect har- 
mony — in fact, the more this work is studied, the 
more the impression grows that "Tapestry" brick- 
work has artistic possibilities far beyond our powers 
of description. The medallions which are shown in 
the upper story of this building are " Brickotta."

Special, each multiple being made of four bricks 
laid with blind joints, to give a brick which appears 
to be 16 1-4" long by 4 3-4" high. 

The blind joints gray, about 1-4" thick, the regular 
joints 7-8" to i" thick, all tooled smooth. 

A soft, gray brown, with a tinge of faint violet in 
certain lights. The treatment of the brick being 
very unusual and the contrast of the polychrome 
terra-cotta being so effective, this building rivals in 
the color and character of the brick work, any build- 
ing erected in New York during the past ten 3'ears.

were used in the front. 

Color is added by the high 
lights in the overhanging cor- 
nice and in the balcony at 
the fifth story, in both of 
which deep orange and dark 
blue are used. The soft tones 
of the brickwork, contrasting 
w i t h the deep colors men-

vorably commented upon by 
discriminating critics from

U. S. SHINGLE TILES 

Manufactured by 

THE UNITED STATES TILE CO. 

Parkersburg, West Virginia 
and you will find, as many others have found, that 

TT. S. SHINGLE TIKES make a positively leak-proof roof. 

U. S. SHINGLE TILES are vitrified and take up the least possible 

amount of moisture. 
TT. S. SHINGLE TILES will never disintegrate, check or fade. 
TT. S. SHINGLE TILES are frost, ice, heat, hail, fire, sun and acid proof. 
TT. S. SHIN GLE TILES will not absorb smoke, grime, dust or dirt. 
TT. S. SHINGLE TILES are non-conductors of heat or cold. 
TT. S. SHINGLE TILES keep the attic as cool as the first floor. 
TT. S. SHINGLE TILES are made from pure SHALE (not indifferent 

clay). 
TT. S. SHINGLE TILES have no foreign substance added to give color, 

t he c olor is from the shale and permanent. 
TT. S. SHINGLE TILES are not dipped, brushed or slipped. 
TT. S. SHINGLE TILES are a rich RED in color, of light, medium and 

dar k sha des. 
TT. S. SHINGLE TILES are strong and tough and will outlast the 

building. 
TT. S. SHINGLE TILES are easy to lay on the roof. 
TT. S. SHINGLE TILES are the result of scientific study and years of 

experience in manufacture. 
TT. & SHINGLE TILES are made by expert tile makers. 
TT. S. SHINGLE TILES are suited to any manner of pitched roof. 
TT. S. SHIN GLE TILES have proven their worth time after time. 
TT. S. SHINGLE TILES are honest goods at honest prices for honest 

roofs. 
Architects' specifications require no special features. TT. S. SHINGLE 
TILES are fastened with 2-inch slaters' nails. (Galvanized or copper 
as desired.) Any slaters' felt is sufficient for covering sheathing boards, 
as a light bed only is necessary on which to lay the tile. TT. S. SHIN- 
GLE TILES do not require any spun oakum or elastic cements to be 
used in body of roof, as do tiles of rim-engaging or interlocking devices. 
They make a leak-proof job without outside assistance.

The cuts on the opposite page illustrate the dining-room and the kitchen 
of the MODEL SUITE of rooms which we showed at the Food Fair last month. 

The GAS FIXTURES in the dining-room show only one out of many 
possible adaptations of the NEW INVERTED GAS LAMP and we re- 
produce it merely to show what BEAUTIFUL EFFECTS can be secured. 

We show other examples in the BOSTON 1915 EXPOSITION. The 
MAIN ENTRANCE FOYER is lighted with GAS LAMPS which show the 
ARTISTIC POSSIBILITIES in the design of GAS FIXTURES as well as 
the LIGHTING EFFECT. 

The three rooms on the right of the main entrance show COMMERCIAL 
LIGHTING and we would ask you to note the QUALITY and DISTRIBU- 
TION of the LIGHT. The NE W GAS LIGHT is recognized by scientists as 
being the NEAREST APPROACH to daylight of any artificial light source. 

In OUR EXHIBIT on the lower floor on the Dartmouth and Huntington 
Avenue corner you will find some examples of RESIDENCE LIGHTING . 
These installations will emphasize the fact that GAS FIXTURES and 
CHANDELIERS maybe made up in any design to' suit ARCHITECTURAL 
and ARTISTIC requirements. 

We also show a model kitchen, completely fitted out with the LATEST 
GAS APPLIANCES — gas range, plate-warming closet, gas water-heater, 
direct connected to boiler and house-piping, and gas steam radiator, giving 
steam-heat automatically regulated. 

You are CORDIALLY INVITED to visit our EXHIBIT or call at the 
BOSTON GAS APPLIANCE EXCHANGE, 16 West Street, where these 
and other appliances and fixtures are shown.

is made of extra fine cotton yarn, the braid and 
finish are hard, smooth and uniform, and every 
foot is carefully inspected and guaranteed free from 
the imperfections which make common cords wear 
out so quickly. 

There is only one grade of Spot Cord. It can be 
distinguished at a glance by our trade mark, the 
Colored Spots. 

Spot Cord is by far the most durable and econom- 
ical material for hanging windows. It was proved 
long ago to last many times longer in running over 
pulleys than metal chain, cord or tape, or than any 
other device. 

We shall be pleased to send you tests, a sample 
card, and information as to the proper sizes for use 
with different weights and pulleys.

SAMSON SPOT 
SASH CORD 

has been used in thousands of buildings of all 
descriptions throughout the United States. Here 
is a list of a few where it has been used recently : 

Hotel Pontchartrain, Detroit, Mich. Geo. D. 

Mason, Detroit, Architect. 

Deaconess Hospital, Boston, Mass. Kendall, 

Taylor & Stevens, Boston, Architects. 

City and County Hospital, St. Paul, Minn. 

Clarence H. Johnson, St. Paul, Architect. 

Technical High School, Newtonville, Mass. 

Geo. F. Newton, Boston, Architect.

Packard Motor Car Co.'s Factories, 

Detroit, Mich. 

Siege! Building, Boston, Mass. Winslow & 

Bigelow, Boston, Architects. 

Hotel Baltimore, Kansas City, Mo. Louis 

Curtis, Kansas City, Architect. 

In many cases other devices, after proving to be 
unsatisfactory, have been taken out of buildings and 
Spot Cord has been put in their place. Actual 
experience has confirmed the tests, which show 
that Spot Cord is far more durable and less 
expensive, both in the beginning and in the end.

A Suggestion 

ETROM time to time you are having various 
greenhouse or conservatory propositions coming 
to hand, involving questions that a greenhouse 
builder could be of assistance to you in deciding. 
If you would then just phone or drop us a 
line, we will cheerfully co-operate with you in 
every possible way. In looking over last 
year's business, it is interesting to note what a 
large proportion of it came through the architects, 
and in checking off the jobs, to recall how pleasant 
our relations had been. Can we be of any serv- 
ice to you right now ?

How to Protect Structural 

Metal 

In this age of steel and iron structures it is most important that 
much attention be devoted to the painting of the metal used in 
construction. 

Years have demonstrated that red lead is the best inhibitor of 
corrosion yet discovered and it is necessary for the architect, who 
wants to erect a building designed to withstand the ravages of 
time and the attack of rust to specify that all metal parts used in 
the construction be painted with red lead. 

To be sure it is a pure red lead with no deleterious adulterations 
specify "National Lead Company's Red Lead." 

We have issued a new hand-book entitled ''How to Protect 
Structural Metal." It treats the subject of corrosion, what it is, 
the various methods proposed by scientists to prevent it and dis- 
cusses the argument for and against every material offered as a 
metal preservative. It includes the results of the most recent

GURNEY HEATERS are more and more preferred as their worth 
becomes appreciated. It is the unanimous verdict of all who use them 
that they combine a greater degree of durability, economy and efficiency 
than any other heater. 

Back of each GURNEY HEATER is the best mechanical and en- 
gineering skill, combined with high-grade materials. No partis slighted 
in the making; hence, the GURNEY gives uniform dependable service. 

The GURNEY HEATER is made for either hot water or steam. 
It consumes less fuel than others; assures complete combustion and an 
even and sure circulation of heat. 

See that the GURNEY is installed and avoid disappointment. Can 
be installed in old or new buildings without inconvenience or disturbance.

A SWEEPING system is an absolute necessity in the modern 
■* *■ office building. Prospective tenants will favor a build- 

ing where the carpets and rugs can be kept perfectly clean. 
Our installations in this class of building have always shown an 
economy in the cost of cleaning over the old methods.

Capacity over 2,000,000 gallons 
Diameter, 100 feet Height, 43 feet 

Wall, 18 inches thick at bottom and 12 inches at top 

AN EXAMPLE OF WATER-PROOFING WITH PINE CONE HYDRATED LIME 



Reservoirs, dams, subways, cellar floors, foundation and exposed walls, 
building blocks — all made water-proof, easily and cheaply, by the additkn of a 
little Pine Cone Hydrated Lime. 

All of the concrete is water-proof, the interior as well as the exterior, so 
that cracking or crumbling of the suriace causes no bad results. 

No extra labor is necessary, as the Pine Cone Hydrated Lime is included 
when the concrete is mixed. 

The correct proportions are as follows : 

Cement Sand Stone 

For i 2 4 add 8% (32 lbs. ) Pine Cone Hydrated Lime 

1 2y 2 aYz " 12% (48 ibs.) " 

13 5" 16% (64 lbs.) " 

Percentages are based on the weight of the dry lime to the dry cement. 
Pine Cone Hydrated Lime is sold by dealers in building material.

When Architects Sign their Buildings 

It will be pretty bad for one whose name 
plate shows from the ruins of a collapse 

No one wants his name tacked to a 
failure. Therefore the manufacturer 
who brands his goods with his own 
name is careful of quality. 

"We might brand our sash cord with 
any one of a hundred names such as 
"Star," "Excelsior," "Eureka," but we 
make so good a cord we want our own 
name on it — Silver Lake. 




IF THIS CORD FAILS 

there is our name on it, and we have 
spent forty years in building up a busi- 
ness value for that name. Do you think 
we can afford to jeopardize the effort of 
forty years? 

Estimate the greatest possible saving 
in the first cost of a building by using 
cheap cord. If there is any saving 1 , can 
you allow your client to take it. For the 
cheapest sash-cord service specify Sil- 
ver Lake A, and don't forget to 
Look for our name on every foot of it

for the pre-eminence of 

"OPALUX" 

"OP LUX " Reflectors are scientific in 
principle. They preserve in all its pur- 
ity and power the light radiated from 
Tungsten and other lamps. 
"0? LUX" Reflectors possess great 
reflecting power, providing a perfect 
diffusion of brilliant light in the place 
where it is required. 

"OP LUX" Reflectors have a patented 
egg shell finish, with the reflecting sur- 
face on the diffusing side, therefore 
dust does not diminish their efficiency, 
they are easily cleaned, and they send 
downward light of exceeding softness 
entirely free from sharp contrasts of 
intensity. 

"OPALUX" Reflectors are of a milky 
white, opal-like glass, of so attractive, 
yet simple, a design, that they lend 
themselves with elasticity to the most 
varied schemes of interior decoration. 
In addition we have designed fixtures 
by which we secure a complete har- 
mony of fixture, holder and reflector. 
"OPALUX" Reflectors cost no more 
than others, give more and softer light 
(to prove which we shall be glad to 
have you visit our dark room, or to send 
the original photometric curves) and by 
reason of ease of cleaning are by far 
the most inexpensive in the long run. 
Why not investigate that better reflector 
the "OPALUX?" Upon request we 
shall be pleased at any time to send a 
representative who will submit designs 
and estimates covering proposed in- 
stallations. In the meantime, we sug- 
gest that you write for our literature.
